MUNICH, Germany – Bayern Munich’s young Canadian Alphonso Davies is suffering from “mild inflammation of the heart muscle” (myocarditis) likely after his COVID-19, and is expected to be out for several weeks, his coach Julian Nagelsmann revealed on Friday. .

The 21-year-old left-back’s problem will be “between mild and dull”, said Nagelsmann, when asked about the severity of this inflammation.

Doctors do not have scientific certainty about the origin of this pathology in Davies, “but the probability is great that it comes from his COVID,” Nagelsmann admitted.

“He will be absent indefinitely. It’s not that dramatic, but it has to heal and it’s going to take a while.”

According to the player’s agent, Nick Househ, his client will need at least four weeks to recover.

Another six COVID-affected players will return to the group on Saturday for the trip to Cologne but, Nagelsmann said, only captain Manuel Neuer and Corentin Tolisso are eligible to enter.

The others, Leroy Sané, Dayot Upamecano, Omar Richards and Tanguy Nianzou “are recovering, but not yet enough to start the match,” according to the coach.

Of the nine players who tested positive for coronavirus last week, only Lucas Hernandez has yet to recover. Kingsley Coman is fully recovered but will be out with the aftermath of a muscle injury.

Nagelsmann recalled for this match the two youngsters who entered last week’s match against Mönchengladbach (2-1 loss), Paul Wanner (16) and Lukas Copado (18). Wanner became the youngest player in Bayern Bundesliga history on this occasion, aged 16 years and 15 days.

Great loss for Canada

Due to his medical condition, Davies will not be able to help Canada in the qualifying round for the Concacaf Winter World Cup.

This round has three parts.

Canada’s national team has six games remaining in the final round of Concacaf qualifying. The next three scheduled under FIFA’s 10-day international window of January 24-February 2, 2022. The first of these matches will be played on January 27, 2022 in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, followed by a match in house on January 30 and finally a meeting in San Salvador on February 2.
